BT Livermore, left, and Dave Hutchins of Butte protest on the south sidewalk on Thursday. A self-employed sign painter and artist, Livermore said of his protest against Donald Trump, Jr., and Greg Gianforte speaking in Butte: "I'm standing up for what I believe to be right. I don't necessarily agree with the politics of the current administration that exclude people -- and that's what I'm all about." Hutchins, a mine reclamation researcher and metallurgy doctoral student at Montana Tech, said: "I don't want to see Gianforte elected. I want our policies to be based on facts and evidence and not based on a piece of fiction from 2,000 years ago."
